Class ended before I was able to return to the subject of Facebook.
- Here is a blog entry by a security consultant.
- Here is a Fox news story
- And here is a Chicago newspaper:
Social and professional networking is a way for you to communicate and share information with individuals. This can be done in person as well as on the Internet. For example, many of us use Facebook and MySpace to keep our friends and family informed as to what’s been going on in our lives. It’s also quite possible that we may have uploaded pictures and videos of ourselves and our friends and our favorite music on those sites. This might all seem harmless and fun to you, but be advised that a prospective employer could be looking at these sites before making hiring decisions. In fact, CareerBuilder.com reports that the majority (63 percent) of hiring managers who researched candidates on social networking sites did not hire the person based on what they found.
